This clock is based on the 'Ever Ready Electrically propelled clocks' which were manufactured at the beginning of the last century. A unique feature is the motion of the pendulum which swings backwards and forwards instead of from side to side. The principle of operation is that of Scotts 'notched tooth' which is similar to the 'Hipp' system well known to amateur clockmakers. A full description of the construction is given including winding the magnet coils. Although I have called it 'battery operated: it can of course be run from the mains supply using a transformer and rectifier. As usual I have taken the opportunity to update the material suppliers and correct errors in the text. The chapter ring is available for those who do not wish to engrave their own.
The lathe featured in the construction is the Myford ML 7 lathe.
There are 57 pages and over 145 illustrations/drawings.J Wilding
